This Week on Blue....

Luka Bloom(pictured below) has been a highly acclaimed singer/songwriter for nearly four decades, revered at home and abroad  for his heartfelt and thought-provoking songs. His most recent album Frugalisto  is a collection of acoustic songs sung with heart and soul - several of the songs inspired by his recent move to Clare. We feature tracks from the album this week on Blue and he  joins Carl on Wednesday for a Blue of the Night Session - tunes, chats and choices.

Bachianas Brasileiras is Heitor Vill-Lobos' most famous work. There's more to this Brazilian and this week on the Blue, we'll spotlight the lesser known too.

LOUIS REMEMBERED

It's been a sad year for the music world with the loss of many iconic figures. One of our own legends, jazz guitarist Louis Stewart left us earlier this year. Louis' musical legacy is recognised and lauded in the international jazz world. At home in Ireland, where he chose to base himself even at the peak of his international fame, he became a friend and mentor to many in a burgeoning jazz community. His loss is immense. In March 2014, Louis was the featured artist on The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran. This special programme features many of Louis' wonderful performances and his chat with Carl, recalling his early days and the highlights of his international career.
